Untitled

I have tons of new pictures to share and 5 more picnics to post, but unfortunately I am on my laptop tonight and this is not the computer where my pictures are.
I guess those will have to wait for another day.

Since I can't share pictures of my adorable family tonight, I thought I'd share the lyrics to a song that has spoken to my heart recently.

This song is called "I want to be just like you" by Phillips, Craig, and Dean

He climbs in my lap for a goodnight hug
He calls me Dad and I call him Bub
With his faded old pillow and a bear named Pooh
He snuggles up close and says, "I want to be like you"
I tuck him in bed and I kiss him goodnight
Trippin' over the toys as I turn out the light
And I whisper a prayer that someday he'll see
He's got a father in God 'cause he's seen Jesus in me
*chorus:
Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be like me
*Got to admit I've got so far to go
Make so many mistakes and I'm sure that You know
Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try
With all the pressures in life I just can't get it all right
But I'm trying so hard to learn from the best
Being patient and kind, filled with Your tenderness
'Cause I know that he'll learn from the things that he sees
And the Jesus he finds will be the Jesus in me
*chorus
*Right now from where he stands I may seem mighty tall
But it's only 'cause I'm learning from the best Father of them all
*Lord, I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be just like me
I want to be a holy example
For his innocent eyes to see
Help me be a living Bible, Lord
That my little boy can read
Lord I want to be just like You
'Cause he wants to be like me
*Lord I want to be just like you
cause he wants to be like meee ya


I recently borrowed this CD from my sister and I've been listening to it often in the car. It's a greatest hits CD, so all of the songs are great, but there's just something about this song that really brings life into focus for me.
Raising 3 little boys right now, I just can't think of a song that speaks more to my heart than this.

That's all for now.
Hopefully I'll have some time in the next few days to post some fun pics!
Tomorrow is going to be a swimming day at our house--I can't wait!

I have always liked that song.
But when I put the faces of Brady, Logan and Marshall with the words,
it is overwhelming.

Agreed. I love that song and it sure does make me think about the kind of example I want to be for those 3 precious little boys.
